A wonderful respite

  • 4 of 5

We loved this house. We had a little difficulty finding it at first but, once we did we settled in quickly. There are a lot of stairs bringing you up into the trees so make sure that you pack efficiently. My husband two kids and I were only there for one night and truly wish that we could have stayed longer. It is such a peaceful cozy place and a much needed respite on our drive up the coast. There are lots of nice surprises throughout the patio and house. If we are ever in the area we will certainly go back.

Peaceful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

I booked this property for my boyfriend's birthday and it was better than expected. The hot tub was relaxing, there was a little fire pit on the patio. You can hear the sounds of the creek which is wonderful to wake up to. The kitchen had all of the pots and pans and everything we needed to make dinner. The bed was comfortable. Everything was perfect.

Great cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed staying at Tranquility Base over Easter weekend. Being up among the impressive Redwoods (love that deck!), hearing the sound of the creek and the birds was a tonic for the soul. The beds were comfy, living room cozy, and the kitchen was spot-on with everything we needed. Thank you!

Rustic retreat! Fun atmosphere. Beautiful Setting. Sound of water running a creek!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect night for our family visit to Santa Cruz. I only wish we had a a couple of days or more to spend there.

I love rustic locations, quiet, sounds of birds, nature, streams. I like roads that are hidden among the trees, and no traffic.

This was a stop for a family of 4, and although a little tight for a husband / wife, and 18 year old twins, it was a nice way to spend an evening. Plus our twins were off their phones with limited cell service. :-)

The house is decorated in a fun atmosphere of rustic Hawaiian mountain home. A nice sign greeted us in the yard.

The hosts made if very easy to find. You must park on the side of the road next to the house, and then a set of wooden stairs take you to the house. An adventure, but a nice one.

We arrived late, around 9:30 pm, and so was dark, but we could find our way in. It was easy to access.

Once inside we used the two bedrooms plus the roll-away/couch for 1 of our twins.

The hot tub is a nice touch. No bubbles or jets, and water not extra hot. Kitchen is small but adequate, although we ate in Santa Cruz, and left before breakfast, so didn't use the kitchen to its full extent.

A nice stay. You must love rustic to enjoy this house. But if you do, you will love this location.
